How to Handle, Prevent, and Even Remove Negative Online Reviews

In this episode of Straight Talk!, learn how to deal with, sometimes remove, and ultimately avoid negative online reviews.

The hard truth in this modern age of technology is that consumers take online reviews seriously.

Almost 50% said they trusted online reviews just as much as personal recommendations. (Check out Polish Your Online Presence to learn more about the importance of online reviews.)
